Portland here I come...

I did it - I signed up for the Portland Marathon today! I have been really thinking the past few weeks and I really need to finish another marathon that I am proud of - so I signed up for the Portland Marathon on October 5th. This gives me six months of training time, a fall run and some time to really get geared up and possibly drag one of my friends along. The Y-run group has said great things about Portland, and it was my father-in-laws first marathon, so something inside of me says to go for it. I'll start working on my training plan - yeah, I have a new project!

Oh yeah, they are i-pod friendly in Portland, I'll work on my playlists too!

Tonight is a run from the Y, around Bradely Lake (the baby bear has been relocated), a stop at the photo store to pick-up my photos and back to the Y to see what other trouble I can get into.

Today is the start of my second marathon training!

Oh, Portland is fun - and a whole different experience from Yakima. You will never be alone on the course, never! We'll probably be there too.

Good job getting right on your next goal. I can only imagine what a different experience it's going to be with six months more training and one marathon under your belt. Congratulations!

Hi. My name is Jessica, also. And I, too am running the Portland marathon in October. I set up a forum on runnerslounge.com to chat about it if you want to check it out. There are a few blogger chicks that are running it too! I am hoping we can plan a meet up at some point. Here is the link:
